It goes without saying that Ramen gets all the attention in the noodle soup world, but in my opinion udon deserves a spot to shine on the podium! Did you know that there are at least 11 types of udon served in different regions of Japan? They range from different thickness, shapes, and even incorporating potato starch into the wheat flour mix! The history of Udon is just as complex and rooted in centuries of Japanese culture. To make restaurant-like udon can sound very daunting, but today I am sharing a Udon Noodle Soup Hack using Myojo Tokusen Udon, Cook Do Beef & Pepper Stir Fry Sauce, and Dynasty Sliced Bamboo shoots. This combination will bring out so much flavors and crunch you’d think you’re sitting inside a Udon restaurant and will leave you smacking your lips for more. And hey, the weather is getting chilly and this udon soup is the answer to a warm belly and soul. Enjoy!
